How softly your paws would pad to the door, just before I enter.
How your hazel eyes would gaze and melt with joy when the new day dawns.
How your sleeping yelps would replay the joys of the day.
How you would, one day, sit in front of a blown-open door for an hour, guarding the house until we returned to find you there.
